All Hades 2 keepsakes

The first time you give a character in Hades 2 some Nectar, they will reciprocate with a gift of their own. These are keepsakes, and can be vital in turning the tides against Chronos. Each keepsake has its own effect, and the more you use a keepsake, the more powerful it becomes.

Here is every Hades 2 keepsake you can get in the early access build, along with its effect when they rank up:
